odometer: 9255 for a 2000 is crazy. 514 miles per year can't be enough enjoyment for a Boxster. Makes me wonder what all needs to be replaced with all the sitting this car has done.

At that price it is what a friend calls an ego listing...

Could simply be a 'wifey listing'... as in:
Husband: "Sure honey, you're right. We oughta get rid of one of the cars. Let's sell the Boxster since it's oldest. Go ahead and take a few pix so you can put on Craigslist.

Wife: "Great honey - thanks so much for agreeing. How much should we ask?"

H: "Book value shows Boxsters w/ only 9,000 miles sell for $22k with all our options. Seems really fair since we paid $55k for new. List at $20k and let's see what happens.

W: " Honey you won't believe all the scam calls I keep getting offering $7.5-10k for our beautiful car."

H: "You're right honey that's not nearly enough. We oughtta just keep but at least you tried hard though."

W: "Yeah, absolutely. Can't believe people would think we're that stupid - it's a Porsche."

H: "If you insist dear"
Haver heard this worked for a friend once or twice

I can kinda give the rack a retro nod, but the bumper stickers are too much.

Luggage rack? Give them a 2nd Porsche card. That means they actually USE their Porsche for what it was made for. Driving and taking real trips.

You know what should actually be grounds for revocation of your Porsche card? How many miles you drive your Porsche.

This couple logged 76,000 miles in 8 years, which is more than most "polish with a diaper garage queen" Porsche owners can say.

I may have been too harsh about the luggage rack. I was going to say they have 2 trunks for their stuff, but maybe they're strapping on a pair of skis.

Also agree about putting miles on, but being in LA if they have a 20 mile commute 1-way, they could easily run up that kind of mileage in 8 yrs as a DD. Hopefully they used it for more than DD. The luggage rack probably says it was more than a DD.

But the bumper stickers are still inexcusable.

You can find Caymans with similar mileage for the same price............with a working transmission. And being sold by someone with a firm grasp of the English language.

Just sayin'............

Phoenix Boxster, 2000, no engine, $1500

I would buy this and drag it home, but alas, no room to store it.

SIGH!

The clear bra that's all cracked up is a liability. Is it possible to remove it without ruining the paint?
